I should have stayed with EVGA

Ryan H., Newegg

  • Summary: My Rma experience has been absolutely horrible. I have been trying to get a hold of MSI for 2 days via phone. I have left messages in their voice mail and spent way too much time on hold to no avail.
  • Pros: This card was pretty fast and stayed really cool while it worked.
  • Cons: Card started failing after a month. When I took the card out of my pc I noticed a wire housing was pretty shredded and there was a dent in the heat sink. I had to RMA the card and now I have to worry about getting a locked bios version with locked voltage. That is not what I paid 600 for.

wow,,really?

  • Summary: Highly highly disappointed by MSI, their advertising, and this card (and Nvidia). My card had ACIS quality of 95%, after using card for 4-5 days it begin to artifact in bf3 and other games. Had very very poor overclocking experience (these cards SHOULD be binned).
  • Pros: Runs Cool, and very silent
  • Cons: Poor support atm, Horrible overclocking (this card was made to break world records...look up their youtube video), over priced when other vanilla cards are able to hit 1300+ on 1175mv, and 133% PT.

bad luck of the draw

  • Summary: 1240mhz in the LN2 BIOS is not worth the 600 dollar premium I paid for this and it is not uncommon to get a card that OCs poorly like mine. These cards are not binned and you get from what I hear. I will be RMA'n this.
  • Pros: looks and runs cool but I didn't pay an extra 100 bucks for a cool looking cooler
  • Cons: 1240 max OC :( I've had 3 670s and 1 680 and all have OCed better than this supposedly OCable card.

Update, still no Voltage Control...

Damir H., Newegg
13 July 2012
  • Summary: Save your money and buy a $100 less GTX 680, or $200 GTX 670 for similar performance. MSi completely dropped the ball on Triple Overvoltage gimmick. Not only that, but Uniwinder (MSi AB programmer) said Voltage Control may not even work properly even with Afterburner 2.2.3, and he hasn't even...
  • Pros: Very, Very cool card. Rarely breaks into 60c. Auto fans are fairly quiet. 1335MHz stable OC.
  • Cons: I would strongly advise anyone looking into this card to wait. MSi has flat out deceived the public by advertising "Unlocked Voltage" when it hasn't even developed software for it. Until that happens, you're simply paying for a cooler and looks. Newegg kindly accepted my card back without fees.

  • Summary: Достоинства Всем нравилась Недостатки Пока не оказалось что ПОСТОЯННО слетает видео-драйвер в играх. Общие впечатления Лучше не берите эту фирму, потому что я когда покупал мать MSI-шную поменял её ДВАЖДЫ , всё что-то неработало, в самом конце взял фирмы GIGABYTE.

  • Excerpt: Брал для игры Battlefield 3 В батле на ультра выше 100 фпс, но лаги и фризы.. как на максимальных настройках так и на минимальных...Передвижение в игре рывками.. играть некомфортно вообще.. Т.к. брал исключительно для баттлфилд то очень расстроился.. Не знаю в чем проблема.. Комп мощный но лагает..
